Seldom does a documentary manage to captivate history as The Crusades: Crescent and the Cross does. With good CG (Computer Graphics), it looks almost like a movie though with a historically accurate depiction. though i did miss the exact dates being shown, the presenters however mention the years. It also shows how the crusades was being told by the Muslim perspective though on certain accounts, the Muslim version is either too brief or totally missing. Despite some flaws, it has to get full marks for the visually rich presentation - given that its a documentary - and the entertainment value. A must see for anyone remotely interested in history/Islamic conflict or just for the information this documentary has to show.
